I happened to catch this movie on A & E Classroom, and had to have it after seeing it. It's a terrific escape movie - very dramatic, and the characters are well-rounded and brought to life by the ingenuity of the writing and the actors. After seeing this movie I will never think of Queen Victoria nor her era quite the same - she was a vivacious, witty, and utterly real person, and it was a pleasure to relive her often forgotten-about first years on the throne. We see her transform from a scared, somewhat spoiled child to a young woman desperately in love, and on to a loving wife, mother, and most of all, Queen. It is no wonder the people of Great Britain felt as they did toward her. It also gives a face and fleshes out the character of Prince Albert, so often only mentioned as Queen Victoria's husband but a huge influence and fascinating character in his own right. But I can't convey completely how great this movie is - you have to see it for yourself. However, I can promise a dramatic, emotional, and indulgently nostalgic tour through Victorian England, and a beautiful and timeless romance (upon which most of today's wedding traditions are based) that manages to teach some of history and its fascinating characters in more color than many fictional characters can obtain. Enjoy!

Enjoyable and engaging historical dramatazation of the relationship between Queen Victoria and her husband, Prince Albert. Some "hollywood" license was used in depicting their early relationship. An enjoyable and relatively accurate rendition of the time period.

This is a must have for your video collection if you enjoy history, love stories, or entertainment. Extremely well done. Gives a new perspective on history. A great love story of courage and strength of character. I highly recommend watching and owing this production.
